Year 1 Homework



Year 1 Spellings

Each Friday, we will be sending home a list of words in your child’s spelling book. Homework is due back every Wednesday.

These words follow the level 5 phonic sounds we have been looking at in that week including some tricky words.  We will also be practising letter formation and joins with these words in our handwriting lessons.  We feel it would be very beneficial if you could spend some time reading and writing these words (x4 on each line) at home. If you would like to extend your child further,  there will be extra words with the same grapheme uploaded to the website (see sheet for extra words)

Please encourage your child to write a sentence after they have practised all of their words. They may even like to make a very short story using as many words as possible!


Year 1 Phonics

Please use the Phonics play website (see below) to practise level 5 as well as Level 3 and Level 4 sounds. Your child will be expected to practise reading 'real' or 'fake' words. Each week you can focus on the phoneme (digraph) that is recorded on their spelling sheet (see spelling sheet). Please encourage your child to also practise Level 3 or Level 4 sounds in addition to this. They can also practise the 'Tricky words' games.


Year 1 Maths/Learn Its

These will be handed out weekly for your child to practise at home. Please aim to complete each sheet within the given time in order to progress onto the next step. If you are worried that your child is not progressing (as it will get trickier!) please get in touch with Mrs Trattos. Please can you record the length of time it took your child to complete their task and we will be doing these in class also. Please look on our website page for a link to learning the steps that your child may be stuck on.

Below are some useful links to songs that we are currently using to support the children's learning of numbers to hundred, in digits and words and counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.  The children are thoroughly enjoying singing along.
